Pre-1933 US Minted Gold Coins
The US Mint began production of gold coins in 1795 and ceased production in 1933 and did not print another US Legal Tender gold coin until 1986 (to present day). Pre-1933 gold typically refers to any US gold coin minted between the years of 1795 and 1933.
In 1933 during some of the darkest days of the Great Depression, then President Franklin D. Roosevelt executed an order prohibiting US Citizens from possesing US Minted monetary gold coins. There were some collectors coins and jewelry exempted from this prohibition, but tremendous amounts of Pre-1933 gold were rounded up, melted and cast into bars. If you were caught holding US Minted monetary Gold Coins, it was a $10,000.00 fine and/or imprisonment!
